The other side of the coin is that higher food commodity prices help less developed countries, which tend to be net exporters of them, and so help the poor in that way. I suspect that this effect is generally greater than the other one, especially as long term development aid usually does not consist of food. But things may be getting more difficult in crisis situations where food aid is needed.

I think the one challenge is that the US and Europe tend to engage in protectionism when it comes to food stuffs. This is where the developed world needs to truly embrace free-trade.
